Northridge

DSC_0076

Baltzing around Cal State Northridge while waiting for my wife’s conference to wrap up. This is a major downgrade from last year’s location but we took the opportunity to explore the California Central Coast for an extended weekend. And yes, I’m always up for photographing these mid-century semi-industrial buildings.

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

And another summer, another trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. A full full day this time where the boys played on the beach for a few hours before closing out the Boardwalk at 11pm. This was also a special trip since the older kids were tall enough to go on the Giant Dipper for the first time. Also, because we’re off the little kid rides I get to actually ride things again. This is a lot of fun but does cut into my photography time.

Tamarack Trail

Untitled

The trail that connects Sand Pond to Packer. We only went up to the ridge as we didn’t know how snowed in it would be or if we could even ford the creeks.

Sand Pond

Untitled

One of the boys’ favorite day hikes from Packer. It’s always nice to see how the beaver pond/meadow has matured since our previous visit.

Long Lake, Bear Lake

Untitled

Another hike we had to drive to from Packer. Lots of snow on the ground but it was passable for some of the lakes. Others like Round Lake were still snowed in. Both boys hiked a lot better than I expected and got to see Long Lake, Cub Lake, Little Bear Lake, and Big Bear Lake.

Frazier Falls

Untitled

Drove to this hike from Packer Lake and fully expected to see a ton of water this time. It did not disappoint. Where previous years had been a trickle this year was impressive.
